Travel Leaders Group is furthering its goal of expanding its meetings and events business with the acquisition of YES (Your Event Solutions), a Halifax, U.K.-based company.

Travel Leaders Group (No. 8 on Travel Weekly's 2018 Power List) said the acquisition "will provide both firms with additional geographic reach and meetings expertise."

YES founder and CEO Sue Gill will remain in her position, and no brand or operating changes are expected. YES has teams in England, Switzerland, France, Eastern Europe, Brazil and the Middle East.

Travel Leaders called expanding its meetings and events business "a key focus."

YES joins the company's other U.K. brands: Barrhead Travel, Colletts Travel, Protravel International U.K., Tzell U.K. and Altour.
